Out of all of the so-called "Fox liberals", most of whom play the part of the feckless Democrat who gets gets kicked around by either the other guests or the hosts who they appear with on that network, Sally Kohn has been one of the exceptions. She generally does a good job of explaining actual liberal policies to the viewers, and holds her own even when she's outnumbered.

She's been showing up lately on both CNN and MSNBC, and this Tuesday, CNN had her filling in as one of the co-hosts of Crossfire, alongside serial adulterer, professional Republican turd polisher and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

As Josh Feldman over at Mediaite noted, Kohn got into a back and forth with Gingrich over whether or not President Obama had actually apologized for some of the "scandals" that Newt was hyping this week.

Note to Sally Kohn. The next time someone allows you on the air with Newt Gingrich, quit buying into the right wing's framing on this issue. The GOP has been desperate to conflate the IRS and Benghazi with the actual scandals we're finding out about with Chris Christie.

Someone needs to point out to them every time one of them is allowed on the air that the IRS "scandal" is B.S.
